Girl’s is a wonderful ballad, written by David Bowie and with drums from Phil Collins. It was taken from the album Break Every Rule and was released with the same cover picture and the same b-side track as the single What You Get Is What You See in some European countries. Tina performed the song live at her Break Every Rule Tour. A live version is available on the Live In Europe album from 1988.
The music video shows Tina very sexy with a strapless dress, sitting on a big round platform with a sofa on it. While she holds a microphone and performs the song, several female models (including a young Naomi Campbell) are shown, walking slowly to Tina and sitting next to her. At the end, the camera zooms out and shows the whole stage. The video was originally released on the Break Every Rule home video as a bonus, but is still waiting for a release on DVD.
Released in February 1987 in Europe from Capitol / EMI Records on 7“ & 12“ vinyl, Girl's reached #27 in The Netherlands. The single was not released in America.
